These are exactly the kind of situations where liquid courage comes in to play. I think it is safe to assume you're not talking about Wil Wheaton.....so who is it?
Oh, it's Wil Wheaton. Only he's about my age, lives in my area, doesn't seem nearly as personable, and isn't a geek. Also - I'm 100% sure that I would have more of a shot with the real Wil than the proverbial one. Ah well. Such is life.
